Sahara Rug by Kiliim. The El Delta collection was made as a tribute to the Nile Delta region where our beloved village of Fowa is located. The Delta region is shaped like a triangle, also like the greek letter delta, for this reason the triangle was the main design element used in the collection. The form was manipulated to create directionality, as well as repeated to create traditional motifs to the region.

Kiliim is an Egyptian social enterprise and a lifestyle brand that aims to revive and sustain the local craft of handwoven kilim in Egypt by introducing modern designs to a time-honored technique. When Cairo based husband and wife team found that there was no place to buy kilim rugs when furnishing their daughters nursery, they traveled to the small village of Fowa, that just decades ago used to be a hub for kilim rug weaving. However with a declining tourism industry, the fast spread of cheaper machine made rugs, and a lack of design and innovation in traditional kilims, Fowa’s main industry began to fade. They partnered up with local craftsmen in Fowa and went on to found Kiliim in 2016. Their craftsmen come from a long line of kilim artisans who consider the craft as part of their heritage. They use the finest quality wool/cotton yarn and dyes that are guaranteed to last a lifetime.
